Rochester Fringe Festival announces 2016 dates


The Rochester Fringe Festival today announced the dates for its 2016 event. The 10-day Fringe will take place Thursday, September 15, through Saturday, September 24 -- a similar time frame as the 2014 and 2015 Fringes.

The Fringe also announced that it has also been recommended for a $20,000 Art Works award from the National Endowment for the Arts. According to Fringe Board Chair Justin L. Vigdor, the award will aid in supporting the annual Friday on the Fringe event, which drew out around 13,000 people to Martin Luther King Jr. Park at Manhattan Square last year.
